Chronic Care Management

We Can Help You Manage Your Chronic Conditions

We’re excited to introduce you to a Mercy service, now covered by Medicare, to help you stay well and out of the hospital. This service, called Chronic Care Management, is for anyone who has Medicare and at least two long-lasting illnesses or diseases.

The Benefits of Chronic Care Management

Knowing the right things to do to maintain your health can sometimes be confusing and overwhelming.  You may be seeing multiple physicians, taking multiple medications, unsure of where to access resources or even where to start.

When you’re part of Chronic Care Management, Mercy’s care team will work more closely with you to help you understand what your doctor wants you to do to stay healthy.

  • A nurse is assigned to personally help you with your ongoing care. This nurse is connected to your primary care doctor and has full access to your medical history and test results.
  • Mercy nurses can help you set and reach goals to improve your health. They are available 24 /7 by phone to answer your health questions and offer advice.
  • If you’re on several medications, our nurses can help you understand the medicines you’re taking and when to take them. We even have pharmacists on our team in case you have questions.
  • You’ll also have a VIP guide for making appointments and scheduling tests.

Patients currently participating in this service report that they have their symptoms under control, feel more independent, are more confident in their ability to manage their chronic illnesses, and are more connected to community resources and assistance.

Participation is Easy

Just talk with any member of your care team to let them know you're interested. Or, you can contact Care Management directly at 844.841.3893.
